Online networking is a mystery for many – seemingly it takes so much time and one can hardly ever see results of it, at least on the surface. This is an ongoing discussion I have with a couple of friends and I recently received the same question from one of my LinkedIn (LI) connections:
Mostly I see you so actively involved in different types of discussions at different forums. I could not yet understand what professional benefit people get by involving in public discussions. It takes so much time to reply the queries and then of course you are left with much less time for your actual work. Can you kindly give me an idea how you utilize your active participation in discussions.
So that’s what today’s post is about – a brief overview of professional benefits of online networking.
